Is Assurance just for accountants?

In short – no. Although Assurance services has its roots in accountancy, that is just the beginning of the story. Forget number crunching in a windowless room – you’ll be right there on-site with EY clients, reviewing strategy, assessing risk, forecasting growth. And, while technology does the routine work, you’ll have time to really get to know and understand your clients and their businesses. You may be surprised to learn that across all parts of Assurance teams, we offer bespoke roles in data analytics or emerging technologies where you can create innovative approaches to support EY clients.

Bring your analytical and innovative mindsets. Bring your thirst for knowledge and learning. Bring a healthy skepticism and an eye for detail. We’ll give you access to every kind of business there is, so you can help to make it work better.

In Assurance, we know that we are all at our best working in a team.

Whatever you do, you’ll do it together. Teamwork is the cornerstone of our success in Assurance.

EY teams are diverse and work across borders and cultures. We embrace digital technology in an agile and intelligent way. This helps us better meet our clients’ needs, enhance their experience and increase the quality and value of what we do.

The EY journey never stops. EY professionals constantly embrace change to reflect the rapidly transforming digital landscape, and actively rethink the skills we need from the next generation of audit professionals.

Yet in all this, the human element is – and will always be – critical. We believe that combining human curiosity with forward-thinking technology is the ultimate innovation. And that’s where you play such an important role.

As Assurance evolves, so will you.

We believe in nurturing talent to provide future business leaders for the global marketplace and we’ll help keep you relevant throughout your time with us.

EY award-winning learning programs, such as the Audit Academy, will help you to develop your skills and continue learning, so you’ll always be able to ask the most perceptive and challenging questions.

Your time at EY is unique, shaped by your professional and personal goals, preferences and business needs. Whatever direction you choose, you’ll gain exceptional experiences, lifelong and personalized learning and invaluable coaching and mentoring.

Innovation is not just about implementing technology. Innovation is about people, culture and mindset.
